How to Use Decou-Page Photo Transfer

NOTE: Before printing image, make sure to reverse it if there are letters, words or numbers. Laser printers or dry-toner copier produce the best images.

STEP ONE: Trim image to the desired size. Apply the medium with a brush to the surface and the front side of the image.

STEP TWO: While wet, place image face-down onto the surface. Smooth out creases and air bubbles. Remove excess medium with a damp cloth. Let dry for 8 hours.

STEP THREE: Brush or sponge water onto the back of the image. Let sit for 2-5 minutes.

STEP FOUR: Use a soft sponge or fingers to gently rub away paper layers. Let dry. Repeat wetting process until all paper has been removed.

OPTIONAL: For added durability, also apply as a top coat.

TO USE ON FABRIC

Pre-wash and dry fabric first. If working with layers of fabric, insert a piece of cardboard covered with wax paper between the layers to prevent sticking. Allow to dry 72 hours before hand-washing. Air dry. Do not dry clean or iron. For a machine washable finish, topcoat with Fabric Decou-Page and let dry for 72 hours prior to machine washing.

Tips for Decou-Page Photo Transfer

Do not trim your image too closely. Leaving room around the image will allow you to gently sand the edges after you transfer your image to make it blend into the background better.

Use a brayer to smooth out the paper, always starting from the center and rolling outward.

Allow the piece to dry thoroughly before sanding any uneven edges away.

Apply designs to the back of plates or the edges of other serving platters. Decou-Page is non-toxic but is not FDA approved to come in contact with food or lips.
